Granite Gear has done a great job on this pack! It is very comfortable and can carry a large load. I have never loaded mine to more than 20 pounds but from the design it seems it may be able to carry a max load of 30 pounds. The quality is second to none though for some reason manufacturers always put extra straps, buckles, tags, and too long of straps all over them. I went through the Vapor and cut off 4 oz. of material, now she weighs in at a mere 1 Lbs. 12 oz. The expansion tube is a bit to long as it should be about 5 inches instead of 16 inches, this would probably save another 2 oz.
This pack is very light and fast which has done me very well. It has more than enough room for most with a small bag and can fit enough good food for six days. The back support is light but adds good support and still can be bent and twisted. The Vapor is a great, comfortable, 3600 ci's of room pack, and weighs in at 2 pounds.
